Alaska Airlines to investigate sexual harassment claim made by former Facebook exec

Alaska Airlines to investigate sexual harassment claim made by former Facebook exec

Alaska Airlines has launched an investigation into Randi Zuckerberg's report of a passenger in her row making "repeated lewd sexual remarks" as the flight attendants "brushed off his behavior" and "kept giving him drinks".

Zuckerberg said in her letter that the passenger she was seated next to drank "multiple alcoholic beverages" on the flight, at one point having three such beverages on his tray table at the same time, but doesn't say whether he was served the drinks by staff.

In addition, Zuckerberg tweeted that she had spoken with two Alaska Airlines executives who said they were taking the matter seriously.

She said flight attendants made excuses for his behavior, saying "this guy just doesn't have a filter" and she shouldn't take it personally. She posted a message and share letter she wrote to the carrier on Twitter.

"Which I nearly did until I realized ... why should I have to move?" "I am the one that is being harassed!"

Zuckerberg said that she learned the comments were not unusual and the flight attendants have had previous talks with the man about how he behaves.

The airline said what Zuckerberg shared had been disturbing and wished to discuss the situation further with her and requested a way they could connect with her Wednesday night.

The flight attendants then apparently offered to move Zuckerberg from her first-class seat to a middle seat "at the very back of the plane". "Shouldn't he have been thrown off the plane?!"

Two hours after her initial Tweet, Zuckerman said the company reached out to tell her they had temporarily suspended the man's travel privileges and will act in accordance with the investigation's findings.

However, the airline has since responded to Zuckerberg's complaint.

Alaska Airlines' "vice president of people", Andrea Schneider, said in a blog post Thursday that "this report is very disturbing. (Thank you) for screaming IT'S NOT OK!"

The airline said in part: "We want our guests to feel safe".

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said the airline has "zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members, CNN reported".

In the weeks ahead, we will be working with guests, employees, union partners, and other leaders to review and strengthen our approach to preventing, identifying, and addressing these important issues.
